    Default valley painting

    Hell , Its winter
    how many of you like to paint the lifter valley's with rustolem and do you think it is benificial or a hinderence . I have done this before and did not like the fact that the paint would eventually flake off ..

    Some still do it. There are far better products than paint to coat the valley with. There are some teflon coatings available designed for it. Which engine? The bbc has a very good oiling system and return holes from the heads to pan are very good. Olds not so much. Fords I have no idea.

    Go to grainger and tell them you are looking for paint for electric motors , If you tell them glyptol they have no idea what you are talking about.

    No... If you tell them you're looking for paint for electric motors they will have no idea what you are talking about... you have to specify red insulating VARNISH for electric motors... apparently paint and varnish are a bit of word play that confuses the folks behind the counter. It's made by Sprayon... costs like 6 bucks or so.

    Used to use glyptol when I was a young lad... it was made by GE and you brushed it on... but haven't been able to find it here and was told that it ain't kosher in California anymore. The red varnish works well though... comes in a 20oz spray can... but you must have a very clean and dry surface or it will not adhear properly and will eventually flake off.

    Glyptol is the right stuff, but should be put on new iron only, if not it will peel due to oil in the pores of the block. I have an engine that I built in 1970 and is still in service . No problems with the gyptol.
    Need help finding this 1973 Sanger 18'6" bubble deck mahogany bottom and stringers I was living in Pomona when I sold her in 1979. Just wonder if she still exists

    Update Found my old Sanger 12/7/14 in Reno.

    red insulating VARNISH works very well seals the block the oil rolls off of it very fast and it will not flake off
    its about 8.00 a spray can use two light coats

    Cool

    Glyptol Electrical Armature Paint.....if you simply must paint the inside of your cylinder block. I'd rather not if I don't need to....

    Though tweekers and sanding rolls are plentiful and cheap here in East County... I prefer to keep them away from my shop.

    Dude... that block was at least a box of sanding rolls and a few "bumps".


    J/K

    I had some tooth grindin' tweaked out fool bring in a block to get bored one time... the entire block was a mirror... inside... outside... the works... not a single casting area untouched... and all like I said... mirror. I asked him how long did that take... and he said he had worked on it for about two days straight. Which didn't seem all that bad to me for a fella with a little bit of tooling, some motivation, and a whole lot of nothing else to do...
